Better communications, in style!
Creative's Live! Cam Optia Pro is the premium webcam for enhanced online messaging and phone calls. Its smooth, compact design contains a wide-angle precision lens that gets everyone in the picture, and a true 1.3 megapixel sensor that captures extra detail. Our Live! Audio technology cancels-out any background noise picked-up by the built-in microphone, so people will hear you better. A high-speed USB 2.0 connection eliminates any bottlenecks between the webcam and your computer, and the Live! Cam Optia Pro is fully UVC compliant, so it will work out of the box without requiring any drivers. As an added refinement we've included a headset for private listening.

Don't forget Quidco of course!

No. Good price at ebuyer though still get stung on the postage etc.

I read a couple of reviews and it's got a decent write up. It may not be the best on the market, but there only seem to be two which may be and it they cost more.....

aint got a clue mate :?

Good price, heat added.

Although with skype now supporting higher definition webcam, if you have an extra £15 to spend it would be worthwhile getting the optia AF or the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000. Both are also at unbeatable price from pc world atm.

I bought the 9000 last week and I'm still blown away by the low light capability and superb software that comes with it..........highly recommended.

nice one will look at it?
but only got this one on tues

I have to admit I looked at the logitech 9000 myself but I didn't really need the low light quality and also I can't see the point of autofocus when you're sitting infront of a screen in one position. The wideangle lense on this one appealed though as everyone seems to have widescreen tft's these days and I could save £15.

It's true - i just reserved mine before I posted it!
